"Every specialty has its own technical language. Engineers, architects, or programmers talk about torque, tolerances, or microprocessors; lawyers, real estate brokers, and investment councilors discuss easements, liens, amortization, or escrow accounts. Whenever such terms are unfamiliar to an audience, they need defining" (Lannon, Klepp, & Gurak, 2015, p. 239).
